Summer is the perfect time to get outside with friends and family to enjoy the weather and one way I've been doing this, this summer is by attending ParkLives, a programme from Coca Cola Great Britain. ParkLives is in its first year in Southampton in partnership with Southampton Council and Active Nation. Throughout the summer you can participate in fun and free activities in the beautifully kept and well known Southampton Parks.
Joining Parklives is easy, you just head over to www.parklives.com and enter your post code. This will then bring up all the local activities taking place. You can join in with Badminton which is what I've been loving, Nordic Walking, Tai Chi plus lots of fun for all the family with Dodgeball, Tennis and Buggy Mums. All sessions are run by fully qualified instructors and last between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours.
Not only do you get to work out but you also get to meet new people while doing so, you come away with a bounce in your step and some new friends! The programme is running until 2nd of September with different free activities daily in eleven parks in Southampton. Parklives is also taking place all over the country so make sure you search for your area too!
